Three companies have together won a contract to look into administrative structures for community involvement in renewable energy projects. The research contract, worth £50,000, has been awarded by the Energy Technology Support Unit of the Department of Trade and Industry. The study will be conducted by Ray Mitchell of consultants Rubicon Link, solicitor Malcolm Lynch and Jeff Bishop of consultants BDOR. The three partners in the project bring together experience of community financing and structures, renewable energy schemes and planning and the environment. The group will look at the wider experience of community projects in Sweden and Denmark to see whether similar structures, types of investment and tax concessions could be applied in Britain. They will seek to identify ways of involving communities in renewable energy projects and how this should be promoted and supported more widely.
